More Mexican films please!
20 September 2001 | by (Montréal, Québec, Canada) – See all my reviews

I have seen two Mexican films this year and they are both going to be on my top 10 list. The first was Amores Perros, from which this one could not be more different. "Escrito ." is touching, very funny (without being a comedy), and deep as well. It is almost entirely set in the apartment which the young Nicolas shares with his widowed grandmother, his mother and the beautiful Isabel, the tenant of a makeshift bedroom. Nicolas wants to be a filmmaker, wants to join his father, who followed his ideals to Cuba and Nicaragua, and wants to make love to Isabel. The mother doesn't want to lose him, the grandmother still longs for her long deceased sea captain husband, and Isabel has her secrets. The acting is quite good and the dialogues are pure joy. If it is shown within 500 km of your home, get on the car/bus/train or, failing that, hitchhike to go see it.
